the surface treats expected. a lighter shorter build for the northbound commute. southbound 880 shows a slowdown. the east bay schools are back in session today. we see a good volume. south 880 to alvarado. it should have made its way to the how woulder. i didn't get confirmed consolation. slow toward inion city. as we move to the tras tro valley, an earlier crash and the one here, the second one for 238 causes more slowing off the castro valley y. we see the build typical for west 580 and south 680, dipping below 60. upper 50s not a major concern. we have all of these cars, this is a typical tuesday pattern.
>> a smooth drive to oakland. let's give you live looks. northbound 880, a little bit of slowing. you do have the metering lights on. all lanes filled in as well as off the berkeley curve. notice the fast track lanes, a good move. the cash ones are backed up. we'll look at the north bay, the sun's coming up. the southbound side here down through the curve approaching, no delays novato to central san rafael. back to you. >> jimmy fallon took over as the tonight show host and most say he is a natural fit. >> he is so funny. if you were asleep we now have it for you. here's jimmy. >> welcome. i'm jimmy fallon and i'll be your host for now. >> during one segment fallon
said a friend bet him $100 he would never make it on "the tonight show." then a slew of celebrities showed up to repay that bet including robert deniro, tina fey, lady gaga, and stephen colbert who ponied up the money in coin. >> another big hit came when fallon teamed up with will smith for a segment called the history of hip-hop dancing. moves like the cabbage patch, the robot and i'm about to break dance. >> look at that. they had so much fun. still ahead, hot pockets pulled off walmart shelves. we'll tell you about the voluntary recall and how it's linked to pay area beef. >> we'll continue our olympic coverage all morning long. we'll be back in a minute. ♪
[ male announcer ] leading a multi-faceted life is anything but ordinary. meet the hybrid that matches your drive. ♪ the new 2014 lexus ct hybrid with an epa estimated 42 mpg. ♪ embrace your extraordinary. ♪ >> it's 6:23 as we look at the sun rise over dublin this morning. heavy traffic in. there we'll check with mike in a minute. >> taking us to san francisco this morning, by the bay bridge, a nice way to start our tuesday morning. 6:23. a voluntary recall from the maker of the microwaveable hot
pockets, beef in certain philly steak and cheese sandwiches could have come from sick animals here in the bay area. >> peggy joins us with more details including how a local slaughter house is tied to this. >> that's right. i took an informal poll here in the newsroom. a lot of people love these hot pockets and if you have some in the freezer pull them out, see if they are on the recall list. all because after local slaughter house in petaluma which recalled 9 million pounds of beef from sick or diseased animals. some of the beef made it into the hot pockets snack. the company is alerting consumers to return it for a refund. here in california the hot pockets were sold at walmart, the largest retail grocer, in fact last week walmart had to recall all of the hamburger sold to them by the plant calling the corporation selling this meat not inspected. hot pockets are added to the list. here are the flavors.
this is the philly steak and cheese, 9 ounce size, also in the 54 ounce size, and the hot pockets crust philly steak and cheese in the two pack box. there is a customer line to ask questions what you can do if you have these. 800-392-4057. of course you can always take it back to the store for a full refund. on to the plant in petaluma. the process could be their undoing. it's the rancho feeding corporation. it has shut down beef production while they look into the process. the plant operated without federal inspections of the meat which of course is required. to put it in perspective, they recalled almost 9 million pounds of beef, that's what's involved. that is all of the beef they processed in 2013 plus a production shutdown can place a plant of this size out of
business. the future for that business is very much in question. >> thank you very much. >> let's check in with christina. get your tuesday morning forecast. >> a lot of people headed back to work for today. if that's you, lucky you. four-day work week. your temperatures pretty nice for today. 61 in san francisco, you will notice clouds increasing this afternoon with a storm system moving in. only in the north bay. overnight a few shower, then tomorrow morning mostly clear conditions. overall the big story in the weather department a warming trend. i'll tell you when coming up. first here's mike. >> we're going to take you out and show you the maps where the slow down registers as red. at the bay bridge toll plaza we have a backup, metering lights are on. getting to the area, that's the issue. not through berkeley but back over toward west highway 4 at --

off and some are coming back from the presidents' day holiday. this is also the reason why the east shore freeway is lighter. it held to the upper east shore. a couple of crashes, the worst at san pablo avenue. so you are slow off highway 4, and clearing, racetrack golden gate field. an incident south 238 interchange down to 8th street a fender bender slowing approaching the san mateo bridge as you typically have that slows down as you cross the bay there. another slowdown, a crash in lanes for some time, now clear toward the south bay. the south bay, 101 through san jose, picking up the slowdown. back to you. >> mike, thanks much. >> still ahead the 49ers ready to welcome the first openly gay player? we'll tell you what colin kaepernick has to say about it. >> and reporting for duty. take you to scottsdale.

happened. have you learned anything new? >> we have. that he was 50 years old, lived in the home behind me here with his wife and was well known to law enforcement. the alameda county sheriff's office telling us that deputies had been called to the home 19 times over the past three years. 19 time was last night. for various issues including domestic violence. the sheriff's office provided the photo inside the home shows what appears on the floor the baseball bat deputies say the man used to attack a deputy sergeant. now before that sergeant and another deputy fired back, killing the man. this happening last night. around 10:00. actually it was a medical call. the fire and ambulance called out to treat this man for some issue, while he was in the ambulance he became combative, not clear why, he attacked at least one of the medics and ran in the house.
emt called for law enforcement, when the sheriff's office arrived that sergeant and four other deputies entered the home to look for this man. >> you can imagine this is always a difficult situation for law enforcement. you go into somebody's house, you're not familiar with the house and that person is familiar with their house so. that's kind of the situation that was presented last night. and he comes out, violently attacks the sergeant, hitting him with the baseball bat and attempting to hit him again, that's when shots were fired. >> reporter: the sergeant actually had a rifle drawn when the man hit him, struck him in the arm, knocked the rifle out of his hand. he drew his handgun and another deputy and that's when they fired several shots, killing him in the home. his wife was outside at the time. the sheriff office tells us they are interviewing her, she is being cooperative, they are also interviewing the sergeant and deputy as well. reporting live, bob redell,
"today in the bay." >> let's check your forecast, give you a live look at the sun rise over interstate 580 in dublin. here it comes. here comes christina loren as well. good morning. >> to save the day. 6:47. we have a good looking day shaping up. if you want to get outdoors you're not going to get better conditions than what we have for the first part of the day. beautiful air quality. you notice from our san francisco camera a nice clear start here. temperatures are going to warm up to about 51 degrees at lunch time, then those clouds will thicken up as an area of low pressure gets closer to the bay area. that will likely bring us showers, overnight mostly in the north bay. we'll hit about 59, temperatures dropping in the city. clouds increasing all day long. so as we head throughout the afternoon these are your highs, clouds increasing, limit your sunshine in san francisco, 61 degrees there, as a result at noon 62 for oakland, fremont at 63 today, san jose checking in
with 66, and remember, your seven-day forecast is always scrolling. if you want warmer weather, missing the beach, we've got beautiful conditions at your local beaches as of this weekend. let's talk about the showers we anticipate. right at 3:00 a.m. we're not going to get much. the front falls apart. the clouds increase late wednesday into thursday. nice onshore flow but really that's our only rain chance at least until the end of next week into next weekend when we could tap back into the river. i want to show you your temperature trend via the tri-valley. 68 degrees, cooler with the front coming in tomorrow. in the 70s for thursday into friday. we keep on climbing into the weekend, and then yeah, going to get showers the end of next week so. a little something for everybody, mike, even yourself. >> i'll take it. looking here toward the bay we do have a little change for a lot of places.
first of all, the peninsula not a problem, that's a smooth drive. you're okay there. in the south bay you have the volume kicking in. we expect maybe lighter at least a shorter commute because of a lot of schools are out. that usually means parents are off. you see the typical pattern, we'll see if that eases off early in the commute. but that won't help you now. you got to get out there. a slow southbound drive for 880, a crash at eighth street and the second at alvarado, so that stretch, 238 into union city is a slower drive, we'll watch for that to affect the commute but it's starting to sort itself out. this is west 580 slowing to 680 southbound, now speeds in the orange down to about 55 miles per hour. approaching the merge, with all of these folks out of livermore and sunol. not a surprise. i wanted to point it out.
here the upper east shore freeway is jammed from 4 down to san pablo. a series of crashes, a couple of them stuck around in lanes. a couple others move to the shoulder in richmond. that's causing all of this backup. they could be easier down to the bay bridge and berkeley, the speed in the yellow and green. the 50s and 60s. that's great through that portion. heading to the bay bridge toll plaza and the berkeley curve, then slow down, look at the incline, a smooth drive through the backup at the toll plaza, nice view you can see the city on the san francisco side no. problems across the bay in either direction. the golden gate bridge coming through the north bay, a smooth flow and you can see the two towers and the hills. that's a good view with visibility fine. farther south over the san mateo bridge, coming westbound, meeting up with these folks. it new problem. 101, we get the merge, not an issue.
back to you. >> thanks, mike. it's 6:50. happening now officers looking for two men who led them on a high-speed chase that ended in a crash on the golden gate bridge. it started around 8:00 last night when a ranger saw a man trying to break into a car in the marin headlands. he jumped into a black mercedes and took off hitting two park ranger cars. then trying to cross the golden gate bridge the driver rear ended a car at the toll plaza. two men jumped out and ran away. officers are searching into the residential areas of the presidio. >> the firefighter accused of sexually abusing a teen and selling drugs could enter a plea. arrested last week for a reportedly abusing a 17-year-old boy and selling methamphetamine to children that he had met online. he has work forward the san jose fire department for 20 years, now on unpaid leave pending an
